The School Nurse
Fully-trained Nurse Abby Cox is responsible for supporting and caring for all the girls on all health matters. She works full time on site in her office and in the medical room.
Along with general health matters, she undertakes a wide variety of tasks from the taking out stitches to the taking of blood, which can be helpful to parents when it is difficult taking time off work to take their daughters to their GP.
She also delivers lessons on health, fitness and general well-being as part of the School's comprehensive PSHCE programme. She has an open-door policy for parents as well as the girls and she finds it very helpful to get emails and calls from parents - no matter how trivial a matter may seem. It helps her to know about the girls, as she can respond quickly, alert staff and support the pupil. Parents and girls can talk to her in confidence.
